Calculate the theoretical yield of barium sulfate using your assigned volume. I was assigned 30mL of BaCl2. The balanced equation is: H2SO4 + BaCl2 -> 2HCl + BaSO4. In the experiment we used .20M BaCl2, .60M H2SO4 and 1M HCL
moles BaCl2 = M x L.
Using the coefficients in the balanced equation, convert moles BaCl2 to moles BaSO4.
Convert moles BaSO4 to grams. g = moles x molar mass. This is the theoretical yield.
